Moreover, Disney Publishing Worldwide (DPW), the world’s leading publisher of children’s books and magazines, will increase its presence in the digital learning space with its first language learning product.
The user experience is intuitive—just touch on scenes to learn vocab items—but beneath the simple exterior is a structured, thorough curriculum for vocabulary learning.
The company recently released Noyo Spanish and plans to hit the ground running with apps for French, Portuguese, Mandarin, etc. in the near future. By providing a low-cost, yet thorough, language-learning app for tablets, Noyo hopes to provide students and educators with a tool for any-time learning and to make vocabulary learning less rote and boring.
Along with Mike Sullivan, a passionate career educator, Chan has spun knowledge into an intuitive new platform that serves as the base for Noyo apps.
“We believe strongly that once a learner has an arsenal of new vocabulary, they begin to grasp the concepts of acquiring a new language,” said Sullivan. “Our goal with Noyo is to ignite a fire in a student and instill the desire to become a lifetime language learner.”
